UKRAINE; ANOTHER CUBAN MISSILE CRISIS-OR ANOTHER BAY OF PIGS?

AS WE LISTEN TO AND READ THE AMERICANS AND THEIR ALLIES SPEAK OF THE UKRAINE’S RIGHT TO SOVEREIGNTY, THEIR RIGHT TO ENTER ALLIANCES AND MAKE WHAT FOR THEM, MAY BE SUITABLE ARRANGEMENTS FOR THE DEFENSE OF THAT SOVEREIGNTY. MATCHED WITH THEIR DISREGARD OF RUSSIAN CONCERNS ABOUT THE THREAT TO RUSSIA’S DEFENSE BY SUCH ALLIANCE AND THE POTENTIAL PLACEMENT OF AN OFFENCE WEAPONS SYSTEM IN PROXIMITY TO THEIR CAPITOL CITY.

ONE’S MIND TRAVELS BACK TO AMERICA’S REASONING ABOUT CUBA’S RIGHT TO SOVEINGTY AND RIGHT TO MAKE ALLIENCES, IN THE CUBAN MISSLE CRISIS, PLACING WEAPONS SYSTEMS ON CUBAN SOIL, IN PROXIMITY TO AMERICA’S TERRITORY.

THEN THERE’S THE LITTLE ISSUE OF THE FARCICAL EFFORTS TO INTERFERE IN CUBAN AFFAIRS BY ASSISTING AN ATTEMPT AT THE OVERTHROW OF THE CUBAN GOVERNMENT IN A FARCICAL INVASION, SO NICELY CALLED THE BAY OF PIGS AFFAIR!

NOW THESE OBSERVATIONS DON’T MEAN ONE AGREES WITH THE ACTIONS OF THE RUSSIANS OR OTHERS; BUT MAKES ONE WONDER, HAVE ANY OF THESE PLAYERS GOT AN IOTA OF SENSE BETWEEN THEM?

One consequence of the current social and work environment, regardless of working from home or not; Is the greater amount of time spent in a home environment, which used to seem perfect or at least fairly acceptable. But now one notices little quirks needing attention, just little things, mind.

Like looking at the kitchen counter top array, and developing an urge to rearrange the various kitchen gadget’s positions in relationships to each other. So, with much huffing and puffing, everything moved in accordance with the grand plan; Step back, looking at your handiwork. Agh!! Everything is as they say OXO. (well, we are discussing kitchen gadgets) Except for that Micro wave door, Which, like virtually every other micro wave oven, is hinged on the left, primarily to suit right-handed people.

Now, this does not suit fully one’s use of the micro wave in it’s new position. Standing there, scratching one’s head and musing how unfair this is, especially, considering one is left handed! Questions why do they not have other arrangements for hinging the door, raise up, drop down, hinge on the right, have dual hinging options? Say’s to one’s self perhaps I should patent this idea; However, let’s not make an even bigger idiot of one’s self, do some research; And guess what folks? There are indeed such variables available.

Now, for many people it might be well worthwhile checking out this subject, an article by one, Nat Howard, on HomeSteady dated February 15th 2018. is a good read.

A TALE OF TWO SIBILINGS; LIKE CHALK AND CHEESE, BOTH SERVED ON TWO SERPERATE PLATES. THANK YOU MINISTER!

If you spent less than six months in a home, you are not worthy of anything, so says, Minister for Children, Roderic O’ Gorman

Now, Consider, John and Joan. When John was 9 months old he was placed “In The Care ” of a religious institution. Likewise, Joan who was then 8 years old, in a separate location.

Joan spent her entire life in institutions. John was “fostered out” to several different rural families, John had lived with more different families than he had birthdays before his 8th birthday. John was then, by way of an illegal transaction, transported to another country.

Eventually John returned to Ireland and found his sister.

In due course, Joan received some monetary compensation for her harrowing experiences, and even got to meet the President of Ireland. John however , was told, “As you left the country (8 years old, sold to strangers), and had not actually spent much time in any given “Care premises”, you are not entitled to anything! An Irish solution to an Irish problem.

PS. John had never actually ceased to be an Irish Citizen, just not an equal one!

A true sports person. Champion doesn’t say it good enough about this unique Irish woman!

Having seen and heard, Gold Medal winner, Kellie Harrington; On this evening’s, TV3, 8 o’clock news. One has to say what a real person she is.

EV’S AND SAVING THE PLANT; BUT IT’S ALL ABOUT THE MONEY! ONE SOLUTION, MAYBE?

BUT

Flicking through the TV channels, on one of the Irish channels, came across an individual being interviewed (sorry missed the name), about the success of EV uptake in Ireland. This person made a very astute observation. They basically said; The cost of EV at between 50, 000 and 90,000 euro, were with-in the affordable range for a certain segment of society. but for a very large portion of society, these prices were beyond their reach. The consequence of this fact being a drag on the full uptake of EV’s in Ireland.

Now, while we might not be able to, currently reduce the actual price of EV’s. Perhaps, Could we not make the repayments schedule costs, more attractive, in that, specifically, for the purchase of EVs, only, requiring the financial sector to be extending the normal number of monthly repayments over a period of say; to ten years, instead of the current maxim allowed repayment period. This would have an impact on the attractiveness of EV to many more people in Ireland. Just a thought about how we can all (including the controllers of the monies) play our part in the important task of Ireland reaching it’s targets

Bravely Daring what no scientist (or fool) has dared before:

As we read of billionaires, etc., lavish expenditure on personal, private and touristy space exploration and exploitation. And as Prince William gives out that they should solve earthly problems first, here’s a thought.
Considering all the advanced Tech-know-how and research invested in and coming out of all this space exploration; Could they all not look at ways to install some kind of freezer system at the Poles and stop the ice caps’ melting?
Sound silly? Well, many supposedly silly ideas have gone on to be a fait accompli.

Fame at last!
